This page refers to an event that occurred in the past.

In February 2014, the European Parliament approved a new set of rules regulating electronic cigarettes (e cigarettes). These new rules, slated to take effect in 2016, would ban the advertising of e cigarettes, limit the nicotine concentration in e cigarettes, require e cigarettes to be childproof, and mandate health warning labels on e cigarettes. Currently in the U.S., the FDA has not issued regulations for e cigarettes. In the absence of federal regulation, states are taking a variety of approaches to regulating e cigarettes at the state level.

Join ASTHO on Tuesday, April 8 from 11 a.m. 12 30 p.m. ET to hear from European leaders about the new e cigarette regulations, the work at the national and local level that facilitated the movement of these policies, and the unique challenges and opportunities presented by the development and implementation of these new e cigarette regulations.

Featured Speakers

  • Dominik Schnichels, Head of Unit, Substances of Human Origin and Tobacco Control, European Commission
  • Deborah Arnott, MBA, FRCP (Hon), Chief Executive, Action on Smoking & Health
  • Linda McAvan, MEP, European Parliament
